Biomedical Text Mining: Experience and Pratical Approach


The fields of biomedical researches included biology and medicine has resulted in a sheer amount of published reports, and papers. Above all biomedical text mining has emerged as a vital research domain that has an impact in the project development of these research areas. Therefore, we describe not only the important basic tasks of process of biomedical text mining but also our research experience as a practical approach which has been done from Korean NIH in the field. First we review several main previous approaches as well as tools for biomedical text mining. Second we explain our experience to develop a biomedical text mining system named Pubcluster, along with a practical demonstration of the system. Afterwards, evaluation results showing the stability of the system will be presented. Finally, future directions of our research group will be discussed.
